Hamburg 2015: 6th Triennal of Photography


The title of the sixth edition Hamburg Triennial of Photography is “The Day Will Come,” and it serves as the guiding principle to its program. Curator Krzysztof Candrowicz is the director of the International Photography Festival in Lodz, Poland, the Lodz Art Center, and the Photo Festival Union. As guest director of the 2015 Triennial, he and the curators of the host museum, along with other international partners, have put together around fifteen exhibitions. Then there are additional satellite projects organized by galleries, magazines and collectives, making for a full program of exhibitions on display through the fall and a series events held from June 18th to June 28th.

The Hamburg Triennial 2015 looks to the future. While photography becomes an every greater part of our daily lives and contemporary issues, are we ready to view our cameras and mobile phones as crystal balls capable of foreseeing the future? Art has often been visionary, after all. Like the current exhibition at Le BAL in Paris, Images of Conviction, the Triennial also questions the truth of an image, while wondering what it can tell us about our future, both the visual future of the medium of photography and the future of mankind individually and collectively. The approach is as philosophical as it is political, as in the group exhibition The day will come When there is hope at the Hamburger Kunsthalle, which addresses themes of immigration, exile and utopia in a remarkable way.

Other highlights include Adrian Paci’s video Centro di Permanenza temporanea and the Clemens von Wedemeyer film OTJESD, , the behind-the-scenes look at Phillip Toledano’s self-portraits, the Catherine Balet series Strangers in the Light, Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari’s issues of Toilet Paper Magazine, Taryn Simon’s work with Google Images, and the photographs of Hamburg taken by the Polish collective Sputnik Photos—Adam Panczuk, Rafal Milach, Michal Luczak et Agnieszka Rayss—commissioned by the city’s historical museums.
